(UNDATED) – Dozens of Kroger stores in Indiana will soon start selling CBD products.
A representative for the grocery chain says the products will be available at 89 stores in the Hoosier State by the end of June.
The items will be topical products, such as lotions, balms, oils, and creams that are infused with hemp-derived CBD.
CBD products became legal in the state last year. Hoosiers are able to purchase CBD oil that contains .3 percent or less of THC, the component of the cannabis plant which causes intoxication.
With the low amount of THC, users do not experience a “high” feeling that conventional marijuana users typically encounter.
Kroger issued the following statement regarding their newly offered products:
“Like many retailers, we are offering our customers a highly-curated selection of topical products like lotions, balms, oils, and creams that are infused with hemp-derived CBD. CBD is a naturally-occurring and non-intoxicating compound that has promising benefits and is permitted within federal and state regulations. Our limited selection of hemp-derived CBD topical products is from suppliers that have been reviewed for quality and safety.”
